For more than 30 years, the Liquibox Orbiter has served the needs of dairy companies looking for a filler to handle high volumes, take up less space and reduce labor down to a single person.

Now, with its upgraded filler design, Liquibox said the Orbiter is making production easier, safer and more efficient.

New updates include a simplified loader design with multiple outfeed and loading options to fit into companies’ production environments, including flat drop and tail drop; improved safety features such as additional protective guarding and interlock safety switches with an area scanner; and a simplified operator interface (HMI screen) with a pre-programmed, recipe-driven menu for quick and easy changeover of bag sizes, product, volume and more.

As the only fully automatic, six-head rotary bag-in-box filler in the world, the Liquibox Orbiter is suitable for high-volume processors across a wide-range of products including dairy. It can fill up to 7,500 gallons (30,000 liters) per hour, making it three times faster than other systems on the market. The company said the customizable design handles multiple bag and fitment sizes, with fresh and extended-shelf-life options.

“We’ve been doing business with Liquibox for over 55 years. The Orbiter has been an integral part of our business,”​ said Ed Coryn, president of Dairy Mix in St. Petersburg, Florida.

“Over the last 10 years, we’ve gone up in production. The thing I enjoy most about the Orbiter is that it’s a reliable piece of equipment. It’s done a great job for us.”
